Dr Toolbox - Local Knowledge for Local Doctors

Dr Toolbox is a website set up and run by junior doctors that provides up-to date information relevant to other junior doctors within their trust. The site has been created to help doctors retain local hospital knowledge and pass it on to their successors, so that they can hit the ground running, thereby, improving efficiency and patient safety.

The site lets you access information such as:

  • Bleep numbers of doctors in the hospital both during the week and out of hours 
  • Extension numbers for wards, secretaries and other sites 
  • Commonly used reference guides specific to the hospital, downloadable to your computer and mobile 
  • How to make speciality referrals within the hospital 
  • How to request specific investigations within the hospital 
  • Handover guides for firms 
  • A resource for teaching and post graduate medical education


The Doctor Toolbox Hub is available at http://www.dr-toolbox.com
